Part of the Imaging for Clinicians book series (IMAGCLIN, volume 1)


A 1-month 3-week-old infant with a history of neonatal jaundice, cholestasis, and acholia is admitted to our hospital to rule out biliary atresia and further treatment. Physical examination demonstrates mild mucocutaneous jaundice and hepatomegaly.
